The man known as "Pharma Bro" after jacking up the price of a lifesaving drug -- learns his fate.

A judge sentenced pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli on Friday to seven years in prison for securities fraud.

He was convicted last year of lying to investors in two failed hedge funds.

Shkreli cried as he told the judge that he made many mistakes and he apologized to investors.

He remains in custody.
